How to apply for building regulations approval
If you think that your project will need approval you can apply to your local building control team by:
- Applying online through the Planning Portal.
- Filling in an application form. You can do this yourself at your local council office, by downloading and sending it by email, online through your council's website or in some cases over the phone. (Call your local team (find their details here) and they will guide you through the process.) Call to see what your project fee will be, and you can often pay by using a phone card or through the secure payments system of the council's website. The application form, your fee and any plans to the building management team will need to be sent for registration and inspection.
